Scorpio MC / Midheaven

Individuals with a Scorpio Midheaven (MC) have a commanding presence that can either attract or repel the public. Scorpio is known for its extreme nature, and those with a Scorpio MC embody this trait.

They may also be seen as Machiavellian, hard to work with, secretive, unreachable, strange, cold, and distant. This can make them difficult to approach and work with.

Taurus in astrology

Taurus is ruled by Venus, the planet of pleasure and romance, Venus is also the rule of Libra. While Libra represents Venus’ aspects in a group setting, Taurus represents them in relation to the self. Taurus people love the finer things in life but they don’t like to share, even the information.

Taurus IC / Imum Coeli

The opposite angle of the MC is the Imum Coeli (IC), and Scorpio MC and Taurus IC are interconnected opposites. A Taurus IC provides a stable and comfortable private life for those with a Scorpio MC, which can help them establish themselves in the world. The foundation of a Scorpio MC’s personal life is built upon financial security and material comfort for themselves and their family.


For those with IC in Taurus, they may have felt misunderstood in their family and unable to express themselves fully. Their parents or caretakers may have deeply influenced their childhood with their own set of values, leaving little room for exploration or development of their own values. This can create a structured childhood, where deviation from the norm is punished, leading to stubbornness and conflicts.
